We frequently get mail addressed to other people in our neighborhood. It will usually have our house number but one of the other streets. When I alerted the mail carrier to come back and get the mail she had just left me, her reply was, “I guess I will have to pay more attention.”
A government check belonging to us was delivered to a house with the same number as ours but on another street. The check was cashed using fake IDs. It took more than a year to get our money back. Our storm door has blown off because a carrier failed to shut it after putting our mail in our door.
The carriers aren’t held responsible. We seldom have the same carrier day to day, and our mail is delivered anywhere between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.
